Life is hard so don't be a picky human but your love didn't pick you haha peace. I don't like bitter gourd before when my age was at 5 to 7 years old due to it's bitter taste. Why so bitter just like her lol. I used to cry when they will force me to eat it not until I learned how nutritious it is. After learning the benefits of this bitter gourd, I began to be amazed with it and since then I started to liked it. It became one of my favorite so my father planted some beside our house. It produces so much product that's why my mom says to me to sell some to my teachers. They really liked it since they know that it came from our own plant. It's just so easy to have money back then and even now if you have your own plants in your garden.

When you were a kid I'm very sure that you have foods you didn't like and there are foods you want to consume over and over again, yung hindi pagsasawaan but she got bored of me and didn't want to reply anymore lol. I used to have foods that I hate especially the bitter one. I just can't stand the taste of it but there are also food I want to eat repeatedly. Let me share the foods that I didn't like before but it end up to be my favorite now. Now I wonder when she will be mine. Don't mind me haha.

First in my list was already mentioned in my intro so let's jump into the second one just like what she did, jumping to the second man lol.

It's an egg, contains a hairy one and sometimes it doesn't.

This food is very popular now and even foreigners are very curious how this one taste like. It is called Balut or the egg of Itik or duck. I don't know if it's the appropriate english word for itik but when I googled it, that's the one came up so let it be. But if you know it, you may include it in your comment later.

This is an egg which is the baby duck inside of it is in the developing stage so sometimes it's your bad luck if you can select an egg that contains a partially grown baby duck. This is the reason why I hate this food before because everytime we will eat balut, the duck inside is already big and has bones. My father like it so much so I gave it to him back then. When I learned about the cycle of egg in school, I asked the vendor if how many weeks is the egg already before they cooked it. In that way I can determine whether it has a big or small baby duck. This is the tecnique I'm using everytime I buy.

Now that I'm grown up, this one became my first favorite when it comes to streets foods. Before we go home back then after school, I will asked my father if we can buy one and he don't have any choice so he will buy one for me hihi.

The third one is the Isaw, a street food which is made from chicken instestines.

My first encounter with this food is when by father bought some together with the barbeque. Since I'm new to this food back then I didn't take my portion. My father asked my why and I just said that maybe it contains some substance that is not pleasant to my taste. He then insisted that I should try it for me to experience it's taste. Then I tried it, when I chewed it I taste immediately the bitter taste coming from it and I can feel the things stuffed in that one. My father said that maybe they didn't clean it thoroughly.

Since then I didn't eat isaw again but since I used to drink liquor back then with my group of friends. This street food has never been missing in our table. I'm avoiding it and my friends noticed it. I told them my first experienced with that food and they just laugh and said eww. Later on they said to me that I should try it because they know the vendor so it's safe and clean. I tried it with the sauce, vinegar and chopped onions. I'm amazed that the taste is very different from the first one. I liked it and I asked where this vendor is located. Since then I buy Isaw from their stall until now.

These are some of the foods I used to don't like before but after knowing some information about them, my views and ratings to them suddenly changed.

Author's note

There are things in our life sometimes we encountered and hate it at first but as the time passes by we learned to like them just like what happened to me. Just like in our love life, you don't know whether your enemy now will be your forever hihi. Everytime I eat these foods now I can still remember the good old days which taught me that we can learn to love the things we hate.

Thank you for reading this article friends and see yah.
